We had a great tour of Westminster by Augusta August 2017 and she was very good in her knowledge of history, detail and a great tour guide! She knew a great viewing spot exactly where to go for changing of the guard and her timing was perfect so we can see it all. It was wonderful.

Our Westminster Abby tour leader was wonderful, from City Tours. She was knowledgeable and courteous and skillfully navigated the crowds inside the Abby.. She also knew about the Royal Guards who were going to be practicing for the Queen's birthday and took us for a front row view of multiple brigades marching past us looking very regal.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2017

This was high point of our trip. The other guests cancelled so my daughter and I got a private tour, but the guide was incredible regardless of how many people in the group.

Then the Changing of the Guard, he got us away from all the crowds and we viewed the entire process so closely we could have reached out and touched them! The guided walk from the Abby to the Palace through the Park was so informative.
